Woohoo, finally after having my poor computer down for over a week I got it back yesterday and started putting it altogether, only to find out I didn't quite have enough tubing to finish the loop.....literally missing one piece lol....the piece I had was too short, and the two ends that needed connecting were really close which results in the hose kinking.....anywho, it's up now, and liquid is flowing through it's veins
I have no turned the computer on yet....so I will be reporting back in this post a little bit later with that...I've never been able to take apart my computer, put it back together again and have it boot first try, so chances are I'll have to troubleshoot something although I hope to god I don't have to.
Currently I'm letting the system bleed (getting air bubbles out) and all that good stuff and in one of the pics you'll see paper towel pieces which of course is to help me determine leaks if any.
Anywho, here's my modded out computer, which isn't quite finished as there's still the side panel to get done, the T-line to properly mount, LED's and a cold cathode to add and things of that nature which I'll be posting at a later date.
On with the pics!
Maze4GPU with tweakmonster RAM Sinks on the 6800GT
"Nubiu$" etching done in plexi top
(you can see the loop is not complete, and the bit of hose sticking off the T of the pump is the one that wouldn't quite fit)
And final loop with coolant
Yeah it turned out more pinkish than red, but I didn't want to add a lot of the red dye I have because too much dye and antifreeze will just wind up killing performance....soooo I'm going to see how the setup does and then possibly add more dye to it later....plus I'll have red LED'd fans so that might make it look more red when all is said and done.
That's all folks.....hopefully I'll be up and running within the hour and can post back with new temps and such
